As usual, I’m sharing with you the posts that I wrote last week for my college blog for CBSMoneyWatch.com.
The post that got the most hits, and also great play on the CBS site, focused on Forbes’ latest college rankings. As you’ll discover when you read The Best Colleges You’ve Never Heard Of, the magazine’s more realistic rankings system humiliated a lot of big name schools.
If you’ve lost your job or are eager to explore other fields one career resource you probably overlooked is your alma mater. In this post, I write about how many colleges and universities are giving graduates of all ages advice on finding a job or new career.
I’ve always been skeptical of online universities, but then maybe I’m a fuddy duddy. Online education is only going to continue growing and there needs to be a way to measure the effectiveness of these institutions. You’ll learn about one such way to measure quality in this post.
